Watches for women serve many diverse purposes. It depends on the women who own them. For some women, a watch is just another fabulous piece of jewelry, meant to complete an outfit and exemplify the high taste level of the woman wearing it. Meanwhile some women want their watches to simply tell them the time. Some women want durable, sporty watches to help them keep time when they are running or working out, and some want waterproof watches for swimming. And some adventurous women want watches with even more features like compasses and altimeters.
For the first type of woman, a designer watch is essential. A Burberry timepiece with the classic Haymarket check on a leather strap surrounding a gold-accented watch face would be a great accessory to any fashionable outfit. Or a classic analog watch with a fabric strap is another perfect way to showcase the signature logo of your favorite designer brand, whether it be Gucci, Fendi or Coach. Coach also makes elegant stainless steel watches and silicon-strapped "Boyfriend" watches. If you like silicone, Lacoste also makes some funky and modern silicone styles.
Silicone is also great for simple, practical digital watches. If you are more into function than fashion, you can get a great deal on a digital silicone watch with alarm, stopwatch and date and time functions.
Meanwhile, Timex has watches in every color of the rainbow with all of these features and more. These kinds of women's watches are also great for the athletic type. They are durable and water resistant, and the stopwatch function is great for tracking your running time. The Timex Digital Ironman 30 lap is designed to be able to do the triathlon with you. Adidas also has great athletic watches, with countdown timer and 10-lap memory. Baby-G watches from Casio also have all of these functions with a cute, girly style. For more adventurous yet still stylish women, Baby-G makes watches with functions like tide level display and shock resistance.
Whether you are more into function or fashion, Macy's has the right women watch for you.
